It's no secret that there are rats in the New York City subway system - in fact one got famous for its love of pizza. Well sometimes, those rodents make their way onto an actual train car, which can be pretty disturbing.
This week, however, one subway rider captured video of a rat so big on the F train that it could easily be mistaken for a raccoon. Worse yet, the vermin can be seen climbing the metal poles that thousands of passengers hold daily.
The video was shared by the Subway Creatures Instagram page and the guy who filmed it won free subway rides for a year because of his grotesque clip.
If you've ever wondered if you should wash your hands after riding the subway, now you have your answer.
